The Early and Mid-Victorian Novel Hardback

Edited by David Skilton

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Nineteenth-Century Novel series

Description

The Victorian period was the age of the novel and critics at the time clearly saw the importance of prose fiction.

First published in 1993, this anthology contains over fifty original extracts from contemporary critics on the early and mid-Victorian novel.

Arranged thematically, the volume covers such topics as literary form, the social responsibility of literature, issues of politics and gender, the influence of criticism, realism, plot and characterisation, imagination and creativity, and the office and social standing of the novelist.

The introductions and notes draw together the large number of voices and guide the reader through the Victorian literary critical debate.

This accessible and invaluable guide will be of interest to those studying Victorian literature.
